Aaron Carter performed yesterday at Red, White, and Boom for Mix 93.3 in Kansas City. He was on for half an hour and performed six songs. As some of you know, I have been a fan of Aaron for awhile. But I have to admit that I had been underestimating him. He is so talented. He sounds better live, in my opinion, then he even does on his albums. He needs to hold those notes on his next album. I think everyone in that amphitheater was on their feet. He got an awesome reception.
What I noticed was different from Aaron than the other artists performing that day is the way he connected with the audience. He was the singer that reached out into the crowd and touched hands. After his performance, during an intermission, he went into the crowd and hugged everyone that came up to him. He even walked back into the lawn seats (which were the farthest from the stage). He made everyone feel seen and like they were part of the show.
A few of the other singers there were Lifehouse, Bowling For Soup, Howie Day, Gavin DeGraw, and Nivea.
